This diagram will be in my upcoming book, The Codependency Cure: Self-Love Deficit Disorder Recovery. It was inspired my a dear friend Karen Kaplan who wrote the incredible book, Descendants of Rajgrod: Learning to Forgive.
The Relationship Circle Diagram represents the fluidity of relationships. We can choose to “upgrade” or “downgrade” a relationship based upon our emerging sense of self-love and self-respect. It also demonstrates that we can make ourselves safer from harm while keeping a relationship or, conversely, move closer to a person in order to experience more intimacy and closeness.
